The Brown Homestead

St. Catharines, ON



Offered in English.


Mapping The Brown Homestead is an interactive, digital exhibit using spatial GIS mapping tools. This exhibit offers a guided tour through the changing cultural landscape of our site over time; from its Indigenous roots through the Loyalist era and into the modern age.

The Brown Homestead has been home to four different families since the late 1700s, and is the traditional territory of Indigenous peoples long before European settlement. Explore the link between history and geography, and trace how the space around our site has changed over the centuries.



The Brown Homestead

The Brown Homestead was founded in 2015 to preserve and maintain significant heritage buildings and sites.

We believe that historic sites reach their full potential when they are vibrant community spaces that nurture a growing passion for learning. The Brown Homestead is a model of how historic sites can become creative educational leaders and community catalysts, helping to redefine educational paradigms for a changing world.

We are working to ensure that historic site management becomes an integral part of community planning and development.
